Today, Variety announced that director Chad Stahelski has boarded Sony Pictures Ghost of Tsushima video game adaptation. The open-world PlayStation exclusive was released last year and takes place in feudal Japan. Stahelski has been known for his John Wick films alongside co-director David Leitch.
“Ghost of Tsushima” follows the samurai warrior Jin Sakai, the last remaining member of his clan. He must abandon the traditions that guided him as a warrior to protect the Japanese island of Tsushima during a Mongol invasion.
Stahelski, Alex Young, and Jason Spitz will produce the project under their 87Eleven Entertainment production banner. Game developer Sucker Punch Productions will also help produce the feature film. This marks yet another live-action video game adaption for Sony including next year’s Uncharted film starring Tom Holland.
